Peachy orange w/ brown hues. Small, soapy, whitehead. Smells of rich malt, raisins and cherries. Sweet malt taste with wheat, cherries, dates, figs, alcohol. Medicinal aftertaste leaves bad impression. you could do a lot better.

Nice reddish-orange color with a decent Belgian flavor. Has a bit of a harsh, slightly metallic aftertaste. Not bad, but not one of the better Belgian beers that I’ve had.

Frothy head over a deep amber body, this baby carries a doughy aroma with a quickly fading hint of spiciness. A bit of a caramel flavoring, smooth on the malt. Disinteresting mouthfeel with a mildly hopped finish. I’ll accept a freebee on my next one of these.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden brown, with a weak head (and poor retention at that); yet it is lively and effervescent. The smell is of bread, fruit, and a grassy background. The flavor has a crisp start, sweet middle and a dry, spicy finish. The feel is smooth and slippery with a balanced effervescence and a lingering dryness.

Bottle Safeway. Amber coloured with a short-lived tan head. Aroma is hops, malts and some fruit. Hoppy and fruity flavour with some background malt. Very mild, bordering on bland. Slightly carbonated, mdium bodied, medium to thin mouthfeel. OK but I was expecting better.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz. brown, longneck bottle. Freshness date is of 05/12/05.
Poured out a deep copper color, with a minimal head. The head was tan in color, and it faded quicker than it started. It left a smattering of foamy bubbles around the rim of the glass. Aromas are very weak, it’s really hard to pick out anything above the background. Slight stale malt aromas. No hops aromas or flavors either. Mouthfeel is thin, flavors are weak. Tastes like a stale Budweiser. Not much worth trying again. I know I won’t be buying it again.

Bolleke-draught in the Cellar, St. Andrews. Dark amber colour and medium head. Aroma of spices, hops and fruits. Fantastic. Complex palate: yeast, coriander, hops, nuts, plums and lot more. Unforgettable experience.
